About Schitt’s Creek
Schitt’s Creek (stylized as Schitt$ Creek) is a Canadian television sitcom created by Dan Levy and his father, Eugene Levy, that aired on CBC Television from 2015 to 2020. It consists of 80 episodes spread over six seasons. Produced by Not a Real Company Productions and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the series follows the formerly wealthy Rose family’s trials and tribulations. After their business manager embezzles the family business, Rose Video, the family loses its fortune and relocates to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once purchased as a joke. Now living in a motel, Johnny (Eugene Levy) and Moira (Catherine O’Hara)—along with their adult children, David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy)—must adjust to life without wealth.
The series conception came from Dan Levy, who wondered how wealthy families, as frequently depicted on American reality television, would react if they were to lose all their money. He further developed the series with his father Eugene, before pitching the series to several Canadian and American networks. The series was first sold to CBC Television in Canada and secured final funding to start production in its sale to Pop TV in the United States. Although limited in popularity throughout its first few seasons, the series’s appearance on Netflix after its third season is credited for the show’s rise in stature, attributed to the “Netflix bump” and a dynamic social media presence.
Schitt’s Creek received critical acclaim and garnered a cult following, particularly for its writing, humour, and acting. The series has won various accolades, including two ACTRA Awards and 18 Canadian Screen Awards. It is the first Canadian comedy series to be nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series. It also received two Screen Actors Guild Awards, including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and a total of 19 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series twice. The show received 15 of these nominations for its sixth and final season, setting a record for most Emmy nominations for a comedy series’s final season. For its portrayal of LGBTQ+ people, the series received three nominations for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, winning twice.
At the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the series’ final season swept all seven major comedy awards. It was the first time for a comedy or drama series to receive all seven awards; Dan Levy notably received Outstanding Comedy Series, Writing and Directing for a Comedy Series (the last he shared with Andrew Cividino). It set a record for winning all four major acting categories (Lead Actor/Actress and Supporting Actor/Actress) for O’Hara, Murphy and both Levys—a first for a comedy or drama series. Simultaneously, the series set a new record for most Emmy wins by a comedy series in a single season, beating The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s 2018 record, as well as for most Emmy nominations and wins by a comedy series in its final season.
